  • Mr Ramirez-
    As a 67 year old – 3rd generation military veteran – I am both humbled and grateful for your acknowledgement and genuine appreciation.
    Thank you ! Serving this great nation has always been truest honor of my life.

  • I am a veteran, in fact, I am a decorated combat veteran. And I RESENT the way we are patronized by politicians and some media. No, “veterans” are NOT The foundation of our liberty! The foundation of our liberty is the Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights. We veterans served the interests of the political class. Americans haven’t fought for our liberty since the War Between the States when Southerners fought to be free of Northern politicians. Sadly, they lost. Since then, veterans have been pawns in political chess games.

    • Pawns. indeed – and the current crop of General Officers are almost unanimously political hacks.
      Both WWI and II were us solving problems created by European nations and since then it has been all about making big bucks for big business.
      I was a Marine Corps Grunt in Vietnam and went back in after 9/11.
      The politics in the military was always felt back in the 60’s and 70’s, but it is all pervasive now.
      I don’t think there are any solutions at this point but we sure were a beacon for the world for quite a while.
      Not a bad legacy.
